Friday Favorites

Another week in the books. It’s actually been kind of a relaxing one for me – last week involved a lot of tying up loose ends for my MPH program, but since last weekend was my commencement, that’s over! It’s a weight off my shoulders, and yet feels so strange – I genuinely can’t remember what my life was like before I was in graduate school. Even though I couldn’t celebrate with my friends and family in person, it was nice to “see” them virtually, and I’m so honored that so many people wanted to celebrate my special day with me!
I’ve mentioned that Lily has been loving all this extra time surrounded by people. How cute and funny is she in this picture – I was in the yard down below, and she wanted to come join! (Don’t worry, she could never actually fit between the posts, so she was totally safe).
On to the week’s favorites…
When I got Disney+ a few months ago, one of the very first things that I did was re-watch every episode of Lizzie McGuire. My fingers are crossed that the reboot ends up happening, but for now, we have this fantastic virtual table read of the “I need a bra!” episode.
Center Stage is one of those movies that I watch every time I stumble on it on TV. It’s just such a fun movie, and I even though I’ve (obviously) never been a dancer, I loved watching what seemed to be the behind-the-scenes of ballet life… even though yes, I realize it was fake. So the REAL behind-the-scenes of filming the movie is great!
I love Idina Menzel and Ben Platt, and they do not disappoint in this duet. What a beautiful take on a Disney classic!
I mentioned that I’ve been using Headspace to help me fall asleep. If you’re having trouble, these are some good tips for getting a restful night’s sleep.
Last, but DEFINITELY not least – the recording of the ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST of Hamilton is coming to Disney+ on July 3! This is a full year earlier than originally planned, and I am so excited. Truly, the good news that the world needed right now. I am so incredibly lucky to have seen it performed live (which I still think everyone should do when it’s safe!!), and can’t wait to re-live it, and to see the original cast, too. So exciting!!
